Mercy physiotherapy is one of Perth’s most established physiotherapy clinics being very unique in having a heated hydrotherapy pool.
Our clinic is located within the St John of God Mount Lawley Hospital building. There is no doubt our hospital has some of the best views from a hospital bed in Perth. With the magnificent new stadium lighting up at night, the river at our doorstep and the very popular Belmont racecourse the view is forever changing.
Some 40 years ago the clinic commenced with the aim to support many of the new mothers in the maternity wing when the hospital was operating as St Anne’s Hospital. Even today we have patients who inform us they were born at this hospital.
Mercy Care then took over the running of the hospital and more recently in 2017 the hospital changed hands again and it is now operated by the St John of God Healthcare Group. The hospital has some 300 beds again having a strong focus on maternity.
Our clinic proudly services the wards within the hospital and also has a vibrant outpatient service. The hydrotherapy pool which has been recently renovated also provide an ideal setting for patients to recover combining the warm water and exercises. Many exercise classes are run during the week also using the pool.
Our 15 physiotherapists’ have a wide range of expertise. We all have a strong commitment with a “on hands approach” and exercise prescription. With a specialist rehab gym including Pilates equipment and as mentioned the pool our facility can offer a wide range of recovery pathways.
